Genetically Engineered, HIV-Resistant Cells: The Latest Breakthrough in HIV Gene Therapy

A new gene therapy could make a person's CD4+ cells resistant to HIV -- a method that, if successful, would eliminate the need for antiretroviral drugs for those living with HIV, according to a new study conducted by researchers at the Stanford... Read more »

UCLA-Engineered Stem Cells Seek Out and Kill HIV in Living Organisms

Expanding on previous research providing proof-of-principle that human stem cells can be genetically engineered into HIV-fighting cells, a team of UCLA researchers has now demonstrated that these cells can actually attack HIV-infected cells in a... Read more »

genetically engineer immune cells into potent weapons for battling HIV (CTL, GENE THERAPY)

I would love to know what you think about this.................Einstein researchers genetically engineer immune cells into potent weapons for battling HIVMarch 4, 2008 (Bronx, NY) By outfitting immune-system killer cells with a new pair of genes,...

Hi,This is extremely interesting and important work. As an immunologist, I have advocated immune-based therapies for HIV treatment and, ultimately, cure since the early days of the epidemic. It's becoming clearer that despite truly remarkable... Read more »

Response from the Top Engineer + Digital Hugs Attached ;)

Hey Doc, Thanks for your detailed response. I really appreciate it. I just wanted to mention a few things about your response ! 1- As for the statistics, you're right ! I know the estimated statistics per exposure. However, as you know better...

Hello,The bottom line does not change. Self diagnosis is inappropriate. Your assessment of your degree of HIV risk is way out of proportion to any actual degree of risk. Your "symptoms" are not suggestive of HIV. "Thinking" your... Read more »

Hiv Genetic?

I am HIV positive and have a question pertaining to the genetic possibility of passing this disease on to offspring. Would this be highly likley? I have been negative due to medicine for over 10 years. Would this still be possible?...

No, HIV is not transmitted genetically. It can be passed from an infected mother to her child during childbirth. However, this is not genetic, but direct transmission, and can be prevented with current treatments.... Read more »

HIV tests - genetic?

How do you test for HIV? Can it be determined GENETICALLY? Is the 'Line Immunoassay' method as successful as the Western Blot and ELISA methods, and how does it work?...

You can look for antibodies to HIV or you can look for HIV itself through PCR testing among others. Line assays or recombinant immunoblot assays are equivalent to western blot testing. The assays have pieces of HIV stuck to paper strips which bind... Read more »
